Reflections on lockdown

AGCAS Alumni Network Reunion 

June 2020

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, we have decided to postpone the 2020 AGCAS Alumni Reunion which was to have taken place in Liverpool on Friday 19 June 2020. Since our reunions are generally held between May – September and both travel and gatherings are unlikely to be safe again for some time, we have decided to postpone the reunion till 2021. We will of course keep everyone updated as things become clearer.

Martin Pennington runs Leicester Marathon

October 2018

Alumni Network member Martin Pennington braved the atrocious weather to complete the Leicester Marathon on Sunday 14 October in just over 4 hours and 17 minutes. He has so far raised over £1500 for Women's Aid Leicestershire, a charity that supports and works on behalf of the victims of domestic violence and abuse. 

If you wish to donate then you can do so online (this page will be open for some time after the event itself). If you prefer to donate offline, then you can contact Martin directly to make a pledge.
